Creating connection in community & nature

Creating connection in community & nature

In partnership with the Center for Courage & Renewal (CCR), inspired by the work of Parker J. Palmer, WholeHeart & Courage & Renewal Vermont Programs offer seasonal Circles of Trust, by trained CCR facilitators.

From one-day introductions, 3-4 day retreats, and a year-long seasonal cohort, to a six-month follow up series, Circles of Trust invite reflection and alignment of soul and role.

Living Courage Calls

For people who have participated in a Circle of Trust retreat, ongoing monthly Courage calls are a way stay connected to the principles and practices of Courage & Renewal and deepen community. Six-month sessions of facilitated Living Courage Calls via Zoom help sustain wholehearted practices long after the closing circle.

Please see our events page to register for specific programs.
